Evaluation of Project TREC: Teaching Respect for Every Culture.
The purpose of Teaching Respect for Every Culture (TREC) was to ensure that racial/ethnic, gender, disability, and other circumstances did not bar student access to alcohol/drug education, prevention, and intervention services. This report describes the implementation and evaluation of the TREC Project. Five objectives of TREC were to: (1) establish a committee to review and develop culturally appropriate alcohol/drug prevention and education materials; (2) involve students from diverse backgrounds in alcohol/drug prevention by developing multicultural youth conferences/retreats; (3) expand the pool of school staff with expertise concerning both alcohol/drug prevention and multicultural issues and strategies; (4) increase the knowledge of and support for school alcohol/drug prevention strategies among parents from diverse cultures; and (5) assist underserved and diverse groups of students in accessing and completing recommended alcohol/drug assessments. Analysis of ethnographic data support TREC's positive effects on student participants. Five recommendations are made. Appendices include reflections on TREC by Project Coordinators, agenda's for various aspects of the program, curriculum for TREC student retreats, ethnographic interview protocols, program materials, and multicultural resources.
